    I was just about to post that video. It is excellent. Pretty much covers all the details.

    With some final major house renovations ahead this spring and summer I am thinking about adding some fire sprinkler heads to the gun room. Even though my gun safe (RSC) is located in an area that should not burn real hot. Figure if I am going to remove and replace a few walls running a water line should not be a problem and sprinkler heads are not that costly.

    Another forum member has posted some really good after fire pictures of a safe interior. Things got pretty ugly and sad. I think it was his safe. :(

    Ron;

    That was A1abdj that posted the pics of the burnt safe. I assure you, it was not his. The two of us are the safe professionals who most frequently post on this site.

    Look up the UL rating system for Fire Safe's
    there are certain places, and certain temps that MUST not be passed to get a rating
    and the time isn't when it goes in the oven, rather when the oven is up to temp...

    Now, you take a RSC, flip it on it's back, shove it in an oven and start the clock with the oven cold...
    you will get a MUCH better rating than what it's actually.

    Many thanks. I know you always post good safe dope and are a wealth of information on the subject. I wasn't sure about that picture so thank you for the clarification.

    What about the GSA class 6 security container stuff I see now and then, generally Mosler. Say 52 x24 x 39ish? Or the Schwab DataBank or Fireguard stuff. They seem to be kinda big for the space inside. I don't know anything about secirity of the double doors, if they relockers, hard plates and such. But the fire protection side seems to very good? They also do not seem to have the super expanding tape "stuff" to seal the doors?
